A new publication on East Anglian archaeology

We are pleased to announce the publication of a collection of essays on landscape archaeology and artefact studies in East Anglia, presented to the CBA East chair, Andrew Rogerson.

“Andrew Rogerson is one of the most important and influential archaeologists currently working in East Anglia. The various essays in this volume, presented to him by friends and colleagues from both the university sector and public archaeology, closely reflect his diverse interests and his activities in the region over many decades. They include studies of ‘small finds’ from many periods; of landscapes, both urban and rural; and of many aspects of medieval archaeology and history. This important collection will be essential reading for all those interested in the history and archaeology of Norfolk and Suffolk, in the interpretation of artefacts within their landscape contexts, and in the material culture of the Middle Ages.”

The publication is available in print and digital format from Archaeopress here.

New discoveries in the East of England: an update to the regional research framework

The East of England research framework was developed in the 1990s, published in 2000 and revised in 2011. It was never intended to be a fixed point but rather a dynamic process through which the region’s archaeology can be influenced.

As new discoveries are made and new research priorities established, the framework will be kept live and updated by the historic environment community of the East of England.

Details of key new projects can be found online.

The publication Research and Archaeology Revisited: a revised framework for the East of England edited by Maria Medlycott East Anglian Archaeology Occasional Paper 24 is available in print from Oxbow Books, or free download from eaareports.org.uk as pdf.
